Examining the Permanence of Education in Solving Social Problems.
Dincer, Caglayan; Guneysu, Sibel
This study examined the permanence of the effect of education given to preschool children on solving their social problems. In previous research, 74 children completed pre-tests measuring problem-solving skills and then approximately half participated in a 14-week educational program on social problem-solving. Post-test results indicated an increase in the problem-solving skills of the experimental group. In this study, the post-test was administered again to the children one year later. Although the differences between the two groups of children were significant on the first post-test, they were not significant on this post-test. An increase in scores was found for the control group children, while a significant decrease in test scores was found for the experimental group, resulting in equal scores for both groups. Results suggested that social problem-solving education needs to be continuous. (Includes author abstracts in French and Spanish. Contains 19 references.) (EV)
